Are you an employee of a Canadian manufacturer or company that exports or imports machinery, equipment and software to U.S. customers or abroad? Are you responsible for sales and service, or purchase and procurement of these products?

This joint webinar hosted by MLT Aikins and GHY International centers around what Canadian manufacturers and companies need to know regarding importing and exporting products and regarding the people accompanying the products.

  • Challenges and opportunities unique to the manufacturing sector and highlighting temporary imports (including case study examples)
